The Miami Center of Excellence for Obstetrics and Gynecology is proud to offer an unsurpassed experience for ultrasound in Miami. Ultrasounds are used for a variety of medical reasons, but they are best known in pregnancy.
An ultrasound image of a baby inside mom is an unbelievable breakthrough in modern medicine. The information your doctor or midwife can obtain from the ultrasound is incomparable, and has vastly improved how we care for pregnancy. It allows us to estimate the size and weight of the baby, the position and sex of the baby, and the amount of amniotic fluid. This greatly enhances our ability to assess your baby’s well-being, as well as to see more subtle changes associated with certain pregnancy problems. Your doctors and midwives at The Miami Center of Excellence usually examine your baby by ultrasound several times during your pregnancy.
Some of the indications for ultrasound are:
- Confirm gestational age and estimated due date
- Monitor size
- Ensure sufficient amniotic fluid
- Ensure baby is in a head-down position
- Evaluate the baby’s movements
- Evaluate blood flow through the placenta
From a parent’s perspective, there is nothing like being able to see your precious child even before birth. At your first ultrasound, as early as six weeks gestation, you will most likely see the heart beating; as your pregnancy progresses, you can see the baby grow and develop. This allows you to start bonding from the very beginning. You get the peace of mind that your baby looks healthy, and if your pregnancy is challenging, ultrasound helps to ensure the best possible outcome.
With modern technology, our state-of-the-art advanced ultrasound equipment provides 3D and 4D images of your baby. You can see the actual face of your unborn child, with every facial detail, as well as the activities that your baby is doing inside – from sleeping and thumb-sucking to kicking and laughing!
If you need an ultrasound in Miami for other reasons related to obstetric and gynecological care, the Miami Center of Excellence is the right address. Indications for a non-pregnancy ultrasound include:
- Ensuring there are no remaining parts of the placenta post-partum
- Checking for growths of the uterus, such as uterine fibroids or polyps
- Evaluating ovarian cysts
- Evaluating heavy menstrual bleeding
